I don't think this experience can be replicated anywhere else. To be able to learn about falconry and hold and photo raptors up close was quite the experience. I saw no less than 20 falcons of all kinds within arms reach. Words cannot do the tour justice. Location is by AUH Airport, so plan accordingly. It was a must see... More

I had been looking forward to visiting this facility for years and was a little underwhelmed by the experience! The admission price of AED170 is outrageous! You do get chilled drinks included. My beef lies with possible welfare issues surrounding the activity - the central tenet of animal welfare is unavoidable pain, distress and suffering. Wearing hoods and keeping Falcons... More

Book a visit, it’s worth it! The tour begins with a short presentation of the various falcon-specious. Thereafter, you get to visit the falcons. Several falcons are there during daytime, sort of like a falcon daycare. You’re allowed to, if you want to, to hold the falcons and of course to take pictures. If you’re lucky, you might be permitted... More

This is a great tour for all ages while it is informative it is also a fun way to learn about one of the World's most beautiful birds, the falcon. Worth every penny/dirham! Well done Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital.

There were so many interesting facts about the Falcons . It was really an extraordinary experience. They allowed us to take pics and gave us an interesting tour. I look at Falcons in a whole new light. "A must"

I was looking forward to this place for months. When I finally got my chance, I was so excited. From the city, it is about a 70AED cab ride into the middle of nowhere. The entry price is 170AED. The people who work admissions are rude and only care about one thing- your money. Once getting turned over to the... More

You learn about the falcons. The Vet sedates a falcon and shows you how they clip their talons and file them, as well as the beak. You get to hold a falcon and watch as one is fed.

If your into beautiful birds this is well worth a visit, the falcons are magnificent and to be up so close and hold them is a rare treat. Organised trips are expensive so get a taxi and get them to wait for a small fee.

A difficult one to get to but well worth the trip. We saw the daily check in of the Falcons and watched as they were sedated for their talon clipping and filing. We also had a tour of the hospital with all its major areas. Too many people on the day we went but still worthwhile.
